My cultural education in 2016 (quick review)

Here is a list of my top 10 cultural experiences of 2016:

 

  1. Onegin – Royal Opera House

 

  1. Running Wild – Regents Park Open Air Theatre

 

  1. Christmas Carols – Royal Albert Hall

 

Bernard Cribbins read out of .. well, a Christmas Carol..

 

  1. Tosca – Royal Opera House

 

  1. Stravinsky at the Proms – Royal Albert Hall

 

  1. Anastasia – Royal Opera House

 

This ballet was yet another proof that Natalia Osipova is the greatest dancer of our age.

 

  1. Les Mis – Queen’s Theatre

 

  1. Boris Godunov – Royal Opera House

 

I wasn’t previously a fan of Bryn Terfel but after this opera, this very much changed!

 

  1. Jesus Christ Superstar – Regents Park Open Air Theatre

 

Tyrone Huntley was fantastic as Judas! This production returns next year and I will definitely be seeing it again.

 

  1. No Man’s Land – Wyndham’s Theatre

 

It was such a joy to see Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart on stage together. This play was very dark but at the same time full of warmth and humour – definitely the best experience this year!

2016 has been another fantastic year to enjoy culture in London. I hope that 2017 is even better (and I hope to write more reviews!)
